These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Claire Smith. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Truth be told, I was very reluctant to pursue therapy, but I couldn’t be happier with the way things have worked out and that is all down to Claire. She is genuinely caring and friendly and has given me a fresh perspective on the challenges I had been facing, which is exactly what I needed. Thank you Claire

Claire is an excellent therapist. She has helped me immensely on my journey of self improvement. She is sensitive, courteous, respectful and reliable and I have full confidence in discussing my personal issues with her. She has given me a range of tools to navigate grief, relationship breakdowns and loss of loved ones and I feel a better, healthier person as a result of the work I've done with her. She has a range of specialisms and expertise that I have been able to rely on. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and this really helps me better understand the processes I've been through. I've definitely improved as a result of the work I've done with Claire.

Claire has only been my therapist for a short time so far, but already I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. She listens intently and even signing off her messages with ‘Kindest Claire’ creates a very homely and safe feeling to her work. I can’t wait to be under her therapy for longer!
